A Message from Megan on Mom 2.0 Summit
I attended the Mom 2.0 Summit for blogger’s last week in New Orleans to evangelize on behalf of our Nancy Drew Shadow Ranch gamebook app. The attendees were 400 of the savviest American Mom Bloggers. It was such a joy to meet so many of them. What an inspiration listening to everyone’s passion and creative ideas!
As a side note: Abigail Disney (niece of Walt Disney) was the keynote speaker. She just finished a groundbreaking mini-series entitled Women, War & Peace, which documents the unreported role of girls and women in the peace process in Colombia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Liberia. It will air soon on the Independent Film channel. Abigail talked about the need to make every effort to inspire our girls at an early age to prepare them to be leaders. I would highly recommend that you take the time to watch this important mini-series.
Her Interactive sponsored the “Slumber Party” at the conference on Friday night. And I’m proud to say that the Shadow Ranch app was an absolute hit! Mom’s kept saying that there is nothing quite like it and that they are sick and tired of mindless apps for their daughters. They want their girls to have fun but also be challenged and to learn from games. They realize games are here to stay and were delighted to learn that Her Interactive is creating inspiring entertainment. Check out my Nancy Drew pajamas that I wore at the “Slumber Party.” These are the best pajamas ever!
Have fun and dare to play!
